Maryland Public Schools Move to Remote Learning. Will You?

by The CE Shop Team

Learning From Your Maryland Home Has Its Benefits

As the school year fast approaches many Maryland public schools are opting to start the school year off remotely. That has many real estate professionals wondering: what exactly does that mean for us? Well, the short answer is: it depends.

For those who are actively selling real estate in Maryland, you might come across clients who are looking to move somewhere they can get a little more house for their money so they can set up their own workspaces, have the room for their kids to complete their schoolwork, get more outdoor space for their pet, or finally get that open concept main floor they’ve always wanted.

“If more workplaces offer even some of those benefits, the appeal (and potential tax deduction) of home-office space, among others, might make big, suburban homes even more desirable,” writes Ian Bogost in The Atlantic.

And when showing homes, it’s especially important to help clients visualize certain areas as places they can work.

“The importance of home offices has almost begun to rival the attention that buyers give to kitchens,” Robin Kencel, an associate broker in Greenwich, Conn., told The New York Times

Meanwhile, for those who are just starting out or need to complete their Continuing Education, learning at home appears to be the new norm, at least for the foreseeable future, which is exactly why we encourage you to study with The CE Shop alongside your students at home.

As we’ve mentioned before, one of the many perks of choosing a career in real estate is that you get to create your own schedule, and what better than to start practicing a study routine than from your own home office, or if you have kids, alongside them? By choosing to learn online, you have the freedom to do just that, and get a sense for the level of self-direction needed to become successful.

Either way now is the time to start thinking about the future. Who knows, maybe your work ethic will rub off on them after all.
